Customer Memories

Going to the Lancaster Bakery was always a treat for me.  Of all of the delicious offerings, the chocolate cookies with white icing inside will forever be the best cookies ever!  Another very special favorite was the Easter egg cake.  It was much larger than the size of an egg and was decorated beautifully.  The Easter Bunny put one in my basket for many years!

- Merrio Morton

Never had a better donut since.  Yes, this was the greatest bakery ever.  I have traveled the world, and never have I found a better bakery.

- Jim Knight
